Applique garden becomes a beanstalk that becomes a "ladder"...


Slow progress on my ORGANIC home..."saving the world starts in the home....." I appliqued first of my flowers and clouds  while riding to the ski resort yesterday and when I showed Sean he commented, "I like your beanstalk" and I giggled and then had vision of the fairytale, Jack and the Beanstalk, with the characters climbing the leafy stalk to the mansion in the sky....  As I wanted to CELEBRATE this Sunday with a scriptural post...Google decided on this beauty...



Genesis 28-32.  Jacob had a dream in which he saw a ladder on the earth with its top reaching to heaven and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.  There above it stood the Lord and he said, "I am the Lord God.  I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you."

And I CELEBRATE the imagination path from cutting out a Kaffe flower and ending with visual of God at top of a ladder reassuring us of his love and devotion to each of us. 



and just one more CELEBRATION...my angels here on earth

Love, Em

I love your house! It reminds me of springtime when I was a kid,opening up windows and letting the curtain shears show us the wind. You may have the only house where people knock on the door to come IN to have a breath of fresh air!
May you have a Happy 2011 every day of year!

Only YOU would call that slow progress! You should see the piddling amount of progress I've made - and I wasn't stuck in a truck for 3 days in a row! It looks divine - I love the beanstalks and flowers!
